About the Book:

Winner of the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) Golden Pen Award

The text book Soft Surfaces contains over 1,200 high-quality colour images of textiles, in print and on CD-ROM with printable TIFF files. The book is tailored to research needs in scope and focus, offering examples for a wide range of artists including theatrical and film set designers and trompe l'oeil artists, architects, interior designers, textile professionals, illustrators and graphic designers as well as artists and designers who create computer environments, including animators and video game designers.

The collection of photographs catalogs how hundreds of varieties of textiles, grouped by structure and surface treatment, look up close and in interior and exterior applications such as window treatments, upholstery, awnings, tents, and floor coverings. Captions give information about the fabric’s construction and history with a separate listing of suppliers. Images are coded and cross-referenced in the index and on the CD-ROM. With an illustrated glossary, resource sections, and interviews with professionals who describe how they use visual research in their work, this is a great book for students.
